    On our network we have a few computers that are running XP, and sometimes the mapped network shares will not connect on login. Reboot and login again and it works. Any ideas what causes this :?:

    Are the drives mapped through a logon script or are they mapped from the machine? Is this a server/client or peer-to-peer network? Is server/client, what is the server’s O/S. If peer-to-peer, how many systems do you have running on the network?

    Sorry I didn’t give all the information: It is a client/server environment with server being a 2000 and the systems are XP’s. The mapping is being done through login script.

    perhaps you would like to try net use #: \xxxxx /persistent command.

    check on the command usage if you’re not sure. I might make a spelling mistake or so ..
